Foracort Rotacaps 100 mcg 6 mcg is recommended by doctors for treating Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airways that narrows them and makes breathing very difficult. Asthma can attack people of all ages and usually worsens at night or early morning. COPD is a chronic disease of the airways of the lungs specifically caused by cigarette smoking. Foracort Rotacaps contain two different types of medicine-Budesonide and formoterol fumarate. Budesonide belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids, while formoterol fumarate is a long-acting beta2 adrenoceptor agonist and Asthma. This combination helps relieve symptoms associated with breathing problems like Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD).
